St. Mary's man charged with attempted murder

A Saint Marys man is in jail, charged with attempted murder after a shooting in Newport.
35-year-old Michael Good stands accused of shooting 25-year-old Richard Carter of Parkersburg twice – in the face and the shoulder. The shooting took place under the Carpenter Bridge in Newport.
Carter was taken by car to the Pleasants County EMS station, from which he was transported to Camden Clark in Parkersburg, and was then flown to Charleston Area Medical Center. His condition was not available this morning.
Washington County Sheriff’s deputies, accompanied by West Virginia state troopers, went to Good’s home on Cow Creek Road and arrested him. He was taken to the North Central Regional Jail, where he will face extradition back to Ohio unless he waives that right. There were independent witnesses to the shooting, which took place at a popular fishing spot under the bridge in Newport.
Officials allege that Good shot Carter as part of a tangled relationship involving Good and the shooting victim’s wife.
